Is Torrontes the next Malbec?

I just tried my first bottle of Torrontes (Crios) the other night and really enjoyed it. The nose was reminiscent almost of a Gewürztraminer with wonderful flavors on the palate. This will make a nice addition to my standby Sauvignon Blanc in the summertime. I had no knowledge of this varietal previously, I wonder if it could burst out of Argentina like Malbec did?
